The Council of Canadians will be in beautiful Kelowna, BC from October 26-28 for our 22nd Annual General Meeting. We hope you can join us for a free public forum, followed by a weekend of workshops and panel discussions, focusing on a peoples’ vision of North America. This year’s theme is “Take it Back!” and will feature speakers and activists from Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. We’ll be looking at ways to take back what is ours – our democratic right to participate in discussions about Canada’s future within North America. This event is open to everyone. You don’t have to be a Council member to attend. It’s all happening at the Coast Capri Hotel, 1171 Harvey Avenue, in Kelowna.
